How to Predict Cylinder Liner Cavitation to Avoid Warranty Issues and Reduce Maintenance Costs


Erosion due to cavitation may cause irreparable damage to an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) with a wetted liner. This – more often than not – leads to fatal failure. AVL has developed a simulation solution that enables engineers to compute the interaction of piston slap and cavitation. This helps to identify erosion areas and define measures to combat the potential critical conditions this would otherwise lead to.In this free, 60-minute webinar, our experts discuss AVL’s well-validated virtual solution, which uses computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and multi-body dynamics (MBD) simulation to predict cylinder liner cavitation and its consequences.
